By The Numbers

Stuyvesant class of ’17, by the numbers | Power Line: "On Twitter via John Podhoretz, I see that Kay Hymovitz points to the demographic breakdown of the entering freshman class at Stuyvesant High School. Stuyvesant is one of New York’s specialized public high schools where entrance is determined solely by Specialized High School Admission Test scores:
—Stuyvesant offered admission to 9 black students; 24 Latino students; 177 white students; and 620 students who identify as Asian."
And from the comments there's this from Larry Elder:

Larry Elder talks about a library near where he lives in LA. The sidewalk outside is full of black kids on skateboards and break dancing. Inside it is filled with Korean kids studying with their mothers hovering over them.
It's not cool to be smart. Full. Stop. Coming. Soon. Because. O. This.
